Echo Park - For the Record layouts

Growin Up: I finallllly got to break into the Echo Park For the Record line and I could NOT be happier with the line and all the fun colors, patterns and goodies that it comes with... oh my gosh I am in {LOVE}... it's kinda got a vintage distressed feel to it, and I really love that.. For this page, I actually used ALL patterned paper and NO cardstock!! that is seriously a hard one for me. That was part of the throwdown challenge this week at Memorable Seasons, so this is my result. I also used Inspired Blueprints #65 for this page. I love the fun scrabble letters in the pack too.. how fun!!!!
The photos are of Sydney modeling some of her auntie Kristine's dresses for her shop at the boutique. It was pretty hot out, and Sydney did NOT like the sun in her face, so I put my hat on her and LOVE how the photos turned out...

I cut out several of the "flowers" and added some pearl bling:
Check out that cool alphas:
Added some machine sewing on the strip:
Remember This: I kinda went messy, distressed, and inky on this page... The fun feel of the vintagey line, just kinda grabs ya, and so I made sure I used sandpaper on the cardstock, my MM distress-er for the edges, and then some ink on the newspaper print paper... Plus added a bit of paper tearing in there too.. This photo was of me and Syd at Disney last Oct at Utopia..
I used Coredinates Cardstock for this one and added lots of sanding, for that distressed look:
adding some fun stitching on the lace:
